Casa Do Alentejo does seem like a tourist trap at first, but you’ll be very pleasantly surprised. Located in a stunning building, different rooms are available for dining and a reservation is strongly recommended. Sausage, cheese and bread (the boring portugese type) are available as an appetizer before the first course. A coriander soup is presented to us, slight coriander taste but nothing to reorder. The main dish however was quiet a treat. Pork meat braised with honey and mustard served with potatoes. According to local sources a typical old school Portugese dish. Nice, savoury and a taste of sweetness which accompanied the meat, a surprising tasteful dish. Desert was a type of cake with caramel sauce. A very sweet and soaked dish, surely a great hit with 10 year old boys. Still, a good place for a real dinner in a lovely location – prices are rather cheap – 600 Euro (including aperitif, wine and digestiv) for 21:
